Overcoming Prejudice

Katawa ShoujoHiya, guys. Happy New Year!

Comic Market has come and gone, and, unfortunately, [erka:es] wasn't among this year's attendees. In other words, Freudenstachel isn't ready for release just yet. Personally, I'd rather take my time and do things right than rush through and do a half-assed job, so I have to respect WOMI's course of action even if it means keeping us waiting a while longer.

Since I'm sure at least a few of you have more free time on your hands than you'd like, I have just the thing to keep you entertained in the meantime. The freeware visual novel Katawa Shoujo has just been released to the public today. Those of you that know me well are aware that I've been looking forward to Katawa Shoujo for a long time now, so I'm glad to see that the title has finally been completed. Normally, I'd gush over what it's about right now, but this is one case where I think the work speaks for itself.

Congratulations to the guys at Four Leaf Studios. I'm sure RAITA would be proud of what you've been able to accomplish. I certainly am. Bravo, guys!

Please note that if you aren't over the age of 18, then Katawa Shoujo probably isn't something you'd be interested in.

  1. At my age (14), we are very interested about things that are 18 above.

    I'm with ya on that.

    @Everyone Else

    Mhakk Como on the SaSA Facebook group found some interesting tidbits regarding the obtainable abilities of the characters not fightable in the trial of RKSF. He did some experiments on the ones you get from Luste, Schwer, and Trauare.

  3. You naughty, naughty boys.

    Still had to laugh at the last sentence though.

  4. Shame that I missed the opportunity of getting ef when it was free. I hope can find some time to get into this one once I get any time on my brother's computer.

    I'm still having troubles dealing with the latest trial's password system. I'm pretty much positive that it's kept in the rks_fs_trial.exe. I mean if I can unlock the password system, then I get some of the abilities, I won't have to brag anymore now that I only have to wait for the stages and boss fights.

    And I still don't understand the ability what Freu learn from Trau, a blue light particles of doom?, but it kills. :creepga:

    And yes, this is Mhakk Como, I don't have a blog account, your argument is invalid.

    Oh, and Frost Klinge is still invisible. Freudenzwinger remains learnable from Liebea, and gosh I was expecting a blizzard!
